(Worthy News) - The White House issued a veto threat Thursday on Democrats' new bill to end the government shutdown, saying it shortchanged “the nation’s urgent border security needs.”
The White House also complained that the package of bills, which Democrats plan to force to the floor for votes later Thursday, the first night of the new Congress, includes billions of dollars in wasteful spending President Trump opposes.
